Follow Up Strategies. 

For Organised Programs

The following are strategies to get Maximum Participation of Invitees and

Pre-Program 

-     Plan intercessory prayers e. g. to get the invitees attention, keen interest and have bountiful harvests through the program. 

-     Collaborate with GEM Publicity for effective mobilisation of members and invitees. 

-     Pre-register invitees, intending guests. 

-     Keep in touch with the invitees daily through SMS, phone calls or visits till the day of the program. This should include programmed daily SMS from the Group. 

-     Liaise with the Transport Section (officers) to provide buses assigned to guests only.

-     In residential program setting like Retreats, liaise with the accommodation and kitchen sections to make special arrangements for the guest’s accommodation and feeding. 

 

During Program

-     Ensure the Groups make adequate transport arrangement for the invitees and monitor the transportation to the venue of the program.

-     Register the guests at the point of entry into the venue, or welcome them during the Moderation session, depending on the program setting

-     Counsel and collect data of the guests during the welcoming address and during altar calls.

 

Post Program Strategies

-     Collate, capture and store the guest’s data in the Central Church ICT Portal (dclmhub. org).

-     Send initial follow-up SMS immediately after the program - appreciation SMS to newcomers and congratulatory SMS to converts. 

-     Sort the guests slips into Old Districts and handover to the Follow-up Reps of various Old districts who will in turn distribute to Groups an Districts for prompt follow-up.

-     Apply the Follow-up operations outlined in Section C above till the guests are genuinely converted, established in the faith, become useful and fruitful in the body of Christ.

-     Use WhatsApp and other Social Media to enhance follow-up activities

 

Non-Program Related Strategic Plan and Activities

-     Train the Follow-up Team members for more effectiveness.

-     Monitor Districts and Groups attendance to ensure the fruits of follow-up translate to numerical growth of the Churches.

-     Make follow-up visits to old members in our Districts (including Location Churches), especially the absentees from fellowships and those facing challenges.

-     Commit each member of the Follow-up Team to engage in personal evangelism 

-     Motivate others (workers and members) to function in the follow-up team, in view of inadequate hands in comparison with the follow-up work demand.

-     Provide follow-up supports to all other GEM Sections during their outreach programs.

-     Do regular reporting and reviews of the follow-up works for continual improvement. This should include weekly progress reports, monthly plan/performance appraisal and quarterly review of the entire follow-up works and strategies.
